Pacers to Cut Marquis Daniels Free
But $7.5 million is obviously a lot for an emergency stand-in who doesn't fit the system and has basically exhausted his potential. Daniels, once a scoring tornado for the Mavericks, is already 28. He's an awful three-point shooter on a team predicated on hitting lots of threes. But Indy has a big hole at the two. Dunleavy will miss the first few months of the season, and Brandon Rush and Travis Diener register as the only natural shooting guards on the roster, unless Jim O'Brien changes course and plays a huge line-up with star combo forward Danny Granger in the backcourt.
